A 13 year old girl Meena’s story of horror and her brave resistance. Her own family – her father and brother tried to force her to blow herself up. She wanted to help the poor by becoming a doctor instead. They wanted her to kill people and be killed herself. Children of her age and younger were forced into attacks. Her own younger sister was drugged, loaded up with a suicide bomb (with remote control) and forcefully sent on an attack. Meena was beaten mercilessly, but she bravely stood fast. By a chance occurence, she was out of the house when the Army launched an airborne attack on the house. She didn’t know what became of her family, whether they lived or died. She set out alone and escaped.
